Abraham Lincoln Toilet Paper Roll Craft
Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. He led the country during the American Civil War preserving the Union, while ending slavery. He lived from February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865.
Abraham Lincoln is a fun and easy color, cut and paste craft that uses a toilet paper roll as a base to give the finished craft a three dimensional effect.
- toilet paper roll or cardboard tube,
- something to color with,
- Print out the craft template of choice.
- Color the craft pieces if you printed the black and white version of the template.
- Cut out the template pieces. This may require an adult's assistance. I usually let Kaitlyn cut out the easy pieces while I work on the harder ones.
- Glue the large rectangular piece on first to cover the tube.
- Glue the bowtie around the top of the tube.
- Glue the head onto the top of the toilet paper roll, overlapping the V of the shirt.
- Glue the hat onto the head.
- Glue the arms onto the sides of the body.
- Glue the feet onto the bottom of the toilet paper roll, using the tabs to give them a 3D effect (fold the tabs and glue so the feet stick out
from the toilet paper roll).
- Close the template window after printing to return to this screen.
- Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
